Orthopedic Practice Goes Digital, Picks Up Carestream’s DR, CR Imaging Systems


February 4, 2009 - As part of its conversion to a digital medical imaging environment, Orthopedic Associates of Meadville, in Meadville, PA, ordered the latest computed and digital radiography solutions from Carestream Health, including a KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR 3500 System, KODAK DIRECTVIEW Classic CR system and KODAK DIRECTVIEW Long-Length Imaging System.

“Carestream Health’s CR and DR systems offer productivity-enhancing features that will speed our workflow and capture the wide range of imaging exams required by our busy multi-physician practice. These platforms are also renowned for their ease of use, which should help our technologists adjust quickly to a digital environment,” said Philip Frndak, M.D., president, Orthopedic Associates. The practice has five physicians and five physician assistants, and performs up to 20,000 medical imaging exams a year.
Dr. Frndak said the practice selected the versatile floor-mounted DR 3500 system because its fully motorized movements deliver excellent productivity for a wide range of exams. The arm maintains constant alignment between the x-ray tube and the Bucky for rapid patient positioning.
The compact, single-cassette CR system will be equipped with long-length imaging software to deliver 35 x 84 cm images for long-bone, spine and other applications. Fully automated stitching software saves time by eliminating the need to orient, order, and align images.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
